Corvette ZR1 is fastest 'Vette ever at 210 miles per hour

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Rear Three Quarter High Wing

It also has two aero packages for buyers to choose from. Its 6.2L supercharged V8 LT5 develops 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque.

In fact, it rams so much air down the V8's throat that it needs two fuel systems to feed it; the motor uses direct injection and supplemental port injection.

"Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back", he added.

The Corvette is generally thought of as an accessible sports auto, but GM refers to the ZR1 as a "Supercar". It's said to be a real road course performer, and its top speed of 210 miles per hour blows away anything out of the domestic stable save for the Ford GT, rated at 216 miles per hour.

This may not be the first Corvette ZR1, but it is the first to be offered with an automatic transmission.

Along with aero bits, the ZTK Performance Pack brings Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, and a special chassis and suspension tune.

An all-new front fascia is created to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13.

Want one? The 2019 ZR1 will go on sale in spring next year. A new carbon fiber "halo" hood rises high and is open in the center in order to clear the bigger supercharger and intercooler. At the rear the standard ZR1 comes with a low set wing that provides 70 per cent more downforce than the Corvette Z06's aerodynamic package.

Powered by a supercharged LT5 6.2-litre V8 that's also good for 715 lb-ft of torque, the ZR1 is capable of a claimed top speed of 338 km/h (210 mph)-the only performance metric Chevrolet has revealed about the auto.

The engine is paired to a standard six-speed automatic transmission, with an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. The most notable changes can be seen on the exterior, as the front of the vehicle sports larger inlets for added cooling while the rear has the option of a high rise spoiler for a substantial increase in downforce. Both of the new ZR1's wing setups are attached directly to the chassis, similar to the construction on the Corvette Racing C7.R.

In addition, a Sebring Orange Design Package is available which includes orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seat belts, orange interior stitching and bronze-aluminium interior trim. Other available features include competition sport seats, a performance data recorder, Bose premium audio system and a carbon fiber rimmed sport steering wheel.

It's good to be the King.
